Human-Robot Teaming


This project’s objective is to develop and validate a method for identifying and supporting tactical and opportunistic collaboration strategies in human-robot systems. Complex operations such as disaster response (e.g., search and rescue tasks with robotic assets), emergency response (e.g., a fire department that sends out UAVs to support firefighters), space operations and, to a lesser degree, manufacturing (e.g., a human-robot system performing a relatively unstructured assembly task) are characterized by time pressure, uncertain demands, and conflicting goals. To enable a range of human control behaviors in human-robot collaboration, integration of human and robot capabilities needs to explicitly support tactical and opportunistic control .
